to speak on this item? so please come forward. >> good morning, my name is peter cohen, with the council committee organizations -- look forward to work with this body this year. look forward to working with him and the rest of you all. we have seen the transportation issues increasingly are embedded in the much broader and more complex set of issues around community and economic development; it has pulled affordable housing into the conversation more often than not and i think it is important that we start to move towards a dialogue around transportation, whether it's infrastructure, ridership, the future of the system that thinks holistically about the communities being served in the relationship to jobs, housing. i think this is if you will a more contemporary frame. at the regional level we have been quite active. the conversation of how to do "smart growth" is still right, not a recipe off the shelf. doing also equitable transportation development is also a puzzle. this body continues to be a leader in helping to figure out that puzzle without necessarily having all the answe

and recommend supervisor cohen for bringing this at this time. i do have a question about bullets, i will ask whether other types of hollow point bullets are appropriate and why we are limiting it to barbed hollow point because it seems that if there is no sporting purpose or other purposes for other types, i have a question of other types of bullets and their use. i will talk to you off line on that one. i commend supervisor cohen for this issue. >> thank you. why don't we open to any member of the public who would like to speak on this item. please come forward. robert green and don duetel. you have three minutes. >> good morning, supervisors. my name is robert green. i want to say that i own no firearms. i stand against these ordinance. i believe the possession of certain sales of ammunition is flawed and would do little if anything to enhance public safety and i recommendation you do not pass. it would require -- one specific ground is identical to another ground. even though it directs the police department to maintain, it also says failure to do so cannot be used as a defense against th

led by supervisor cohen whose district has experienced an inordinate amount of violence throughout this year. we talk about it all the time. what can we do? for one, the ammunition that has been designed especially by law enforcement for military use has no reason to be in our homes and on our streets. and, so, we are introducing legislation focused on what has been labeled to be the hollow point bullets, but there are other types of bullets that are designed for more massive destruction of the human body that should only be in the hands of law enforcement and the military, and not in the civilian hands at all. and we want to ban them from possession in our city of san francisco. so, we're introducing legislation aimed at that kind of ballistics ammunition and banning them from possession in our city. the second piece of legislation is we believe that any person who purchases more than 500 rounds of any type of ammunition, notice should go to our police chief so that we have time to investigate as to reasons why that purchase should be made and understand who is making it. so, we a
